Abstract:

The investigation described in the report represent a continuation of a study undertaken of the opacity mechanisms present in a hydrogenhelium plasma at a temperature of 5000 deg K, and a pressure of about 2000 atm. Special attention was paid to the ultraviolet spectral region 1750 to 2500 A where quasi-molecular hydrogen association is expected to be an important opacity producing mechanism. Author
